the superstorm sandy and during katrina. when american people are asked to innovate, to conserve and car pool. >> and asked to wait in line forever and i don't know that superstorm sandy is the best example. >> one of the things that we have to think about conservation and implications and pollution and things like that. and might force that, but kevin, a lot of people don't have a choice, they have to drive. >> you know, brenda, you can't take blood from a stone. we have inflation in food, in energy and heating oil and the gasoline and everything else and everything consumer goods that we see. it's going to impact discretionary spending. and they are he going to do it willingly and we're all trying it save money, but at the end of the day it's another tax on the middle class, all this is and already, if you look, again, i've lived in eastern europe, too, and pay more for gas, but people cannot spend as much on other things, bottom line it's a tax on the middle class, it's going to affect the economy for the worse, that's it. >> final word. >> challenging things to put in front of the americ
plummeted. it was hurricane katrina times, up $15, and now it's down torina about $2. it's so cheap and plentiful, but people don't want to sort of embrace the idea this is good for the environnt because it is, after all, a fossil fuel.ue. >> it is.t it's not the end of the solution to climate change, but, listen, we have tried for 20 years witho kiota and the e.u. wanted to dod goo.d. we -- i'm from -- we paid $20 billion or $30 billion to cut emissions, and you've done it for free, actually, made moneyyu doing it because you got cheaper energy. that's theth way forward. also, for china and india and everyone else. melissa: proponents of solar and wind don't want to hear is while fracking has been profitable, it's helped the environment, but at the same time, you look at things, like, a big story from w wyoming, why theyh drill, anddrl there's a well that is contaminated one way or the other, and seems like in the reports dealing with this and the neighbors in the neighborhood are saying, and s this is pavilion, wyoming, it's, a result of the fracking nearby, and that's a cas they
katrina. 250,000 pets were left stranded. how big a problem was it following super storm sandy? >> basically they wrote the book on katrina and it shows that people will not leave their pets behind. after the horror stories you have, here we have it right here on long island in the new york metropolitan area. we have set up shelters. we had three pet friendly shelters going for approximately 11 days in suffolk county. >> obviously those have been shut down, but you still are offering a to pets and families who have pets, tell me some of the things you're doing. folks are listening to this, they need some money. they need help on this. explain what you're doing. >> we're going into the hardest hit areas and distributing pet food to people that need -- what people don't realize is people don't have cars anymore. people can't drive. people have lost everything. so we are going into these areas and going door to door and distributing it for them. and whatever we can do to help out with their pets and family members. from past experience, what we found is people refuse to leave when
-- well, except look at the price tag of repairing things after stuff. look at katrina and now sandy. you know, sandy wasn't especially a big hurricane, as hurricanes go. it just happened to get deflected ashore in an inopportune place, and from a geological standpoint, you know, katrina was 2005. sandy is 2012. in a sense of deep time, that's like the blink of an eye. it's just happened like that. if these storms happen every five years, then every four years, this is going to be very expensive and traumatic thing, and that's just in the developed world where we have the means to feed 50,000 people on thanksgiving day, but in developing worlds, it leads to just horrible trauma, and we have huge inefficient sis, and there's going to be conflict over transportation and clean water and who gets the rights to live in the right -- in the most desirable places. this could be a turning point. i am an advocate of doing everything all at once. >> so to both of you as we wrap it up, real quick then, do you believe, the both of you, we're going to see more, larger, begger, more frequent storms as a
, mississippi, which started in 1928, and which was destroyed when katrina went through there a few years back. they're rebuilding it, but it's a very famous pottery, primarily run by walter and mac anderson, who did most of the decorating through the '30s and '40s and '50s. walter is recognized as an artistic genius. couldn't really socialize. he was left to himself to decorate and design. but this is what he did. the colors, the patterns. what also i notice, where the clay shows through, and then the clay color inside, looks to me like shearwater pottery. so i'm pretty sure that's what it is. and it's what we have to do when we don't have a mark. i did research. there's not an exact picture of this in any of the books that i found. and so we have to make certain educated guesses. so i'm guessing you've got a piece of shearwater pottery, shearwater cat. in terms of the decorative style, it's faience technique, background color laid down, and then decorative elements and darker colors starkly painted against it. if this is not shearwater, it's a nice ceramic cat, probably from the '40s or '50s
.s. history. >> and this is adjusted for inflation. katrina's number has gone up since it originally happened. of course, andrew, florida's benchmark worst storm ever. the other thing to notice, look at all the years this happened, this is all since 1992. >> and four since 20057 four of the top five. >> four since 2005. i just don't golf very much because as you know, i'm not very good at golf. this summer i was golfing with a guy who -- i seen what he did, he was a big republican, he was talking on and on. i said, what do you do? he said, basically, i handle actuarial tables for insurance companies. and i said, well, you know, so how's your business going? and he launches into a 30-minute diatribe on global warming and climate change. i said, you're a republican, and you believe in global warming? he said, i look at the numbers. he said, all of the most expensive storms are -- he said, this is going to cripple us. and it just keeps coming. >> it's a collision of two things. one is, it appears that the planet is warming and that we're having more frequent superstorms. and the population is bo
